Resort Origins

An abundance of knowledge and a passion for healthy living has come together to deliver the ultimate resort experience.

Almost two decades ago, Philip Brewer opened a health retreat in B.C.’s Monashee Mountains with the dream of offering a unique, life-changing experience to his guests. Over the years, he helped thousands of people to develop healthier lifestyles, earning him a reputation as a leading coach and lifestyle therapist.

While Mr. Brewer was facilitating better health through lifestyle training, Vic LeBouthillier was working in the corporate environment, coaching executives on managing their stress and improving their emotional intelligence. Simultaneously, he ran Alive Publishing Group, Canada’s largest publisher of health-related magazines, books and online health tools. As its president and CEO, he created the largest and most visited health Web site in Canada, making a wealth of information on healthy living available to the general public.

In 2003, Mr. Brewer and Mr. LeBouthillier’s paths converged. Realizing they shared the same goal of promoting wellness and longevity through education, they began envisioning the ultimate health resort – one that would combine first-class customer service with science-based holistic health training.

When it came time to appoint a medical director, the two men turned to one of Canada’s most respected physicians and researchers in naturopathic medicine. Dr. Garett Swetlikoff’s many accomplishments include creating North America’s first online interactive Health Quotient assessment, developing and teaching advanced courses, and serving with the B.C. and Canadian Naturopathic Association in a variety of positions, currently as president of the BCNA.

Together, these three individuals have established Alive Resort – an all-inclusive resort experience, set in nature’s magnificence, to motivate and educate people to become skilled stewards of their health.
